Here I am up at seven in the morning and my original plan was to start working on the many assignments I have due on Tuesday, but I am writing this instead. I am finding it very hard to get myself going this semester and I don’t know why. Well I shouldn’t say that, because I know that I am heading towards a low and I am doing everything I possibly can to keep myself going. Every time I feel like staying in bed rather than go to classes, I remind myself of the Nike ad that said JUST DO IT. It has been working so far and I hope it continues to.
Just to let you all know, I finished last semester with a 3.92 and an over all of 3.88. I am very proud of the fact that I finished so well, but I wonder if I will be able to keep it up this semester. Already I have seven chapters to read and two papers to write by Tuesday. I wonder sometimes why I do this to myself and then I remember that I am capable of doing this sort of thing.
Alright here is the run down for all of those that want to know what classes I am taking and such. Last semester when I picked my classes I signed up for: English Comp, Development Psychology, Social Psychology, Sociology, and Microeconomics. Like the semester before, I signed up for five so I can see the classes and choose to drop one and did that fine, but this semester it was very hard to choose, so in the end I decided to keep all five. I figured that since I finished so well last semester I can handle it. As I look now at the pile of large books for four of my classes I wonder if I had made a grave mistake.
Honestly though, last semester was my first full time semester and I felt exactly the same way. I even had the bit of a low and was still able to manage the four classes I had. Out of last semester’s four classes of: College Writing, General Psychology, Western Civilization and Math for Liberal Arts, I got an A in each class except for the A- I received in General Psychology.
I guess I am just writing this to remind myself that I am totally capable of carrying on a heavy load of classes. It is funny that just last week I was approached by a newspaper reporter in my area about questions pertaining to my mental illness and my classes. (Note to self: find the article and read it) I was quite honest with her and she was quite impressed with my honesty. I wonder though, what was actually said in the article.
Well I guess that will be all for now. Though this blog is open for anyone to read, I really wrote it to help me to see where I am and in the future take a look back and hopefully be able to say that even with the way I am feeling I still managed to handle each situation and succeed.
Today’s picture is the first book that I ever read out loud to anyone. I loved this book for years and since today is about my education, why not show you all my early steps to it. TTFN
